Profile Last Updated: July 11, 2008
“Let’s go to Greg’s!” is Toronto’s equivalent of “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” This boutique creamery has been making ice cream from natural ingredients since the 1980s, first in a basement shop across from the Royal Ontario Museum, and now at the corner of Bloor and Spadina. Greg’s takes pride in making ice cream from natural ingredients. Indeed, in the kitchen at the back of Greg’s Ice Cream, the main ingredient is sweet cream.
Over 20 Varieties of Chocolate Alone
For years, Greg’s was the only ice cream shop in Toronto where one could order a hot fudge sundae packed with a triple scoop of chocolate-chocolate-chunk, marshmallow sauce, walnuts, a cherry, and best of all, a choice of chocolate candy. From crumbled Skor bars, Crispy Crunches, Skittles and Smarties, choices abound. Today Greg’s features over 20 different varieties of chocolate ice cream alone. Rave reviews typically single out Greg’s roasted marshmallow, ginger, and green tea ice creams. Old standbys such as strawberry ice cream must be tried anew, however, if only for the shock of tasting real strawberries rather than the red dyes of bargain basement confections.
Join the Summer Line-Up
Greg’s hours vary according to the season. On hot summer evenings, the ice cream line-up can wind out the door and onto the sidewalk. With over 100 different flavours and several different “lite ice creams” and yogurt selections – all available in take home tubs – it is worth the wait. Also, remember to stop by the bank en route – Greg’s only accepts cash.
